    1. Jen –
      Recipe is updated to reflect using no butter. I use it when I am making a big loaf pan recipe – but not the mini ones! Sorry for the mix up!

  1. LOVE these!! They never made it to the freezer- we ate them all while they were cooling!! I’m making a double batch this time and since biscuits are on sale I’ll be saving a bunch too! Thanks! Posted this great recipe on my blog.

    1. Emma –
      Refrigerator biscuits are found in your grocers dairy section, with the crescent rolls and cinnamon rolls. They come in a tube, normally with 10 per tube. If you can’t find this in your area, you can always make your own. I have included a link for those. http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/

  2. I made these for my daughter a few days back and just took one out of the freezer and heated it up for her. It was pretty hard and tough. I didn’t cook them too long so I’m not sure if this is normal? Would rolling the small pieces in melted butter before the cinnamon sugar make it a little softer?

    1. I have never had them warm up too hard or tough. Depending on your microwave power, you may have cooked them too long? I would try to decrease the time, and possibly even the power to see if that works!
